Michael Myers from Halloween

After Michael Myers slashed his way back into theaters with last year's Halloween reboot, the iconic horror franchise will return for two more films.

Blumhouse Productions announced that Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends would continue the saga of Michael Myers and Jamie Lee Curtis' Laurie Strode in 2020 and 2021, respectively. The announcement was made with a video teaser that featured several clips from last year's film.

Both sequels will be directed by 2018 Halloween director David Gordon Green. Like that film, these sequels will take place in their own continuity, which only include John Carpenter's original Halloween and last year's film.

Written by Green, Danny McBride and Scott Teems, Halloween Kills will be released on October 16, 2020. Carpenter and Curtis are both attached to the project as executive producers.

Halloween Ends is set to hit theaters on October 15, 2021. Written by Green, McBride, Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier, it will also feature Carpenter and Curtis as executive producers.

Curtis took to Twitter to celebrate the news and confirm the return of her iconic horror heroine Laurie Strode.

Last year's Halloween was a critical and commercial success that became the highest-grossing entry in the long-running horror franchise, grossing $250 million worldwide.

Directed by David Gordon Green from a script by himself, Danny McBride and Scott Teems, Halloween Kills stars Jamie Lee Curtis. The film is set to hit theaters on Oct. 16, 2020.
